Prepare your tastebuds for horseshoes as the INBA Spring 2023 convention rolls into downtown Springfield April 28-30 at the Wyndham City Centre (formerly the Hilton Springfield).
The keynote speaker on Saturday night will be former U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos. Other details, including educational sessions, are still coming together. Watch this website and INBA social media (icons are at the top of this page) as those elements are finalized in the weeks ahead.
We do have a few details to share now:
- Tickets for the convention are on sale now. The deadline to purchase tickets is April 20, although you can get an early bird discount by registering by March 31.
- The INBA rate for rooms at the Wyndham will be $104 a night plus tax. Make your reservation now at https://bit.ly/INBASpring2023. Rooms priced at the convention rate are limited.
- Our Saturday night dinner event will feature the SINBA Awards and scholarship presentations for college broadcasters.
- On Sunday morning, NABJ Chicago President Brandon Pope will talk about how Black journalists can prepare for long careers and how newsrooms can provide support.
- You can’t leave Springfield without having a horseshoe. Prior to our Sunday morning session, the hotel will serve attendees a build-your-own breakfast version of the capital city’s signature dish.
- We are seeking business sponsors for our event. Program advertisements and other promotional considerations are available.
